Centre for Doctoral Training in Sustainable Chemistry

About Us



EPSRC CDT in Sustainable Chemistry

Developed in collaboration with Industry and as a partnership of several disciplines including Chemistry, Engineering, Biosciences and Business, the Centre is set to train students in the development of sustainable processes and compounds for the chemistry-using industries.

In 2013, University of Nottingham was awarded £5.28M to establish EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sustainable Chemistry.  The defining principle that has driven the co-creation of this new CDT training programme is a shared vision and commitment, on the part of all CDT partners, to foster a new generation of champions for sustainable chemistry who are equipped with the skills and experience to lead chemistry-using industries towards a more sustainable future.

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sustainable Chemistry welcomes the applications from science graduates and professionals from the Chemistry, Engineering or Bioscience backgrounds, who are interested to learn more about sustainability in the terms of chemistry and chemical-based supply chains. The Centre programme  is designed to provide students with the technical and theoretical competences to equip them for a leading career in the chemical sciences or chemical user community.

We are currently recruiting students for academic year 2016-17.  Application deadline is  4 M arch 2016.
